It’s the second of two dresses because I decided to make it while I was finishing the first cotton one version. I realised that I have a wool fabric that was still waiting for “its pattern”, and that dress was quick and easy to make, just perfect for a quick dress to be worn now, when it’s so freezing.
I bought this fabric some time ago and it turned out I had 145 cm na 260 cm, just enough to make a full circle skirt and the kimono sleeve top, very 1950s.
I covered all the seams with a bias tape, I also added black bias tape to the neckline and the bottom hem for a colour accent. The hem was left overnight to stretch but I decided not to correct it and just left it how it was – longer at the front and back. There’s one thing I don’t like about this dress – the colour… It’s a black-beige combination and it’s so not my first or even the third choice… I bought the fabric online and from the photos I imagined it to be black-white, and now I think I’ll have to wear it with colourful sweaters and accessories to be happy about it. We’ll see.
